What makes Amphitheater Public Schools truly unique in the Tucson educational system is the District’s ‘Portrait of a Graduate,’ which outlines eight areas important to ensuring that students are ready for college and career opportunities and are prepared to contribute to the world around them.
Amphitheater Public Schools’ core values create an experience that makes education special. Through these values, students are taught essential skills in reading, writing, social sciences, science, mathematics and the arts using a wide range of techniques that encourage creativity, idea development, civic responsibility, caring and emotional well-being.
Amphitheater’s academic focus includes teaching students to recognize and think through problems strategically and logically while also demonstrating the ability to work effectively and respectfully with diverse teams.
At Amphitheater, student education also includes the importance of communicating effectively in varied environments and developing cultural understanding and global awareness. These areas of emphasis help create a special experience for all students and help members of the community come together to foster a sense of belonging.
Stakeholders from around the Amphitheater School District community united to create this vision for children’s futures. Please take a moment to review each component of the Portrait of a Graduate in detail and join us on this exciting educational journey.
